Thousands of Iranians held a massive demonstration in Brandenburg Gate in Berlin on Saturday, 6 July 2019, followed by an impressive rally on the streets of Germany’s capital city calling on the international community and particularly the EU to recognize Iranian people’s right for a regime change in Iran. They supported the uprising of Iran’s people and the struggle of resistance to overthrow the Mullahs tyrannical regime and establishment of democracy and people’s sovereignty.
The demonstrators expressed their support for Iranian Resistance (PMOI/MEK) and the Resistance Parliament in exile (NCRI) and fully supported its President-elect, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, and her 10-Point Platform for the Free Iran of tomorrow after the overthrow of the mullahs.
The Berlin rally was the 3rd major Iranians demonstration in June and July 2019 in Europe and the United States calling for regime change in Iran. The first major Free Iran rally was held in Brussels on June 15. The second rally was held in Washington D.C. on June 21.
In her televised message to the demonstrators in Berlin, Mrs. Rajavi said: “Today, the mullahs have fallen into the trap and impasse of the overthrow, and you, facing your homeland, are telling the uprising people, the workers, the teachers, and other frustrated people to keep up, to dash. The message of you and the Iranian people to the international community, and specifically to Europe, is: The policy of giving concessions to the religious oppression and protecting the mullahs from being overthrown must be stopped.”
According to a Statement by the NCRI, last year Germany arrested a so-called diplomat of the mullah’s regime who personally provided explosives to two terrorists to use against the Iranian Resistance gathering in Paris. Before and after that, during the past three years, the German police have also arrested a dozen mercenaries and terrorists from the (Iranian regime’s) Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS) and the Quds Force. A number of them were tried and imprisoned by German judiciary.
“The MOIS and IRGC mercenaries must be tried, punished and expelled. This is a necessary element in the fight against terrorism and in providing the security for Iranian refugees in Europe,” Mrs. Rajavi said.
Mrs. Rajavi emphasized: “The religious fascism is truly the greatest threat to peace in the world today. From Uranium enrichment, meaning preparation for a nuclear bomb, to the development of ballistic missile program, in violation of Security Council Resolution 2231, to the deployment of forces to Syria, in violation of Resolution 2254, and the intensification of its criminal war in that country. Indeed, if the mullahs were not given relief from Europe, how could they be so rude?”
Any concession to this regime, with any justification, has only one consequence: increasing the prospect of a catastrophic war by the clerics in Iran. Each trade euro with the clerics is a euro for fueling Khamenei’s repression and war machine.
Mrs. Rajavi asked Mrs. Merkel to lead a special initiative at the European level against human rights violations by the Iranian regime, including stopping persecution, execution and killing prisoners under torture. She called for setting up an international delegation to visit Iranian prisons and political prisoners.
